Elon Musk Wants to Fight Mark Zuckerberg and Honestly? Let Him

Sure, why not? What else have we got to lose?

Twitter owner Elon Musk has challenged Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg to a fight, and it doesn't seem like anyone wants to stop them.

Tensions have been high between the two social media moguls ever since October 2022, when Facebook parent company Meta announced they were working on a product to compete with Twitter — around the same time Musk announced his purchase of the platform.

Musk recently poked fun at his competition, writing in a Tweet: "I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options."

When a Twitter user replied to Musk, noting, "Better be careful @elonmusk I heard he does the jiu-jitsu now," Musk wrote back with the challenge: "I’m up for a cage match if he is lol."

While people across social media were amused by Musk's pettiness, his challenge ended up catching the attention of Zuckerberg himself.

On his Instagram story, Zuckerberg posted a screenshot of Musk's challenge with a comment that said Musk "better start training," writing himself: "Send Me Location."

When news broke of Zuckerberg's acceptance, Musk simply tweeted: "Vegas Octagon."

A Meta spokesperson has since confirmed the authenticity of Zuckerberg's Instagram post saying via Verge: "The story speaks for itself."

Last month, Zuckerberg competed in his first jiu-jitsu tournament, winning gold and silver medals. Musk recently tweeted that he "almost never work[s] out," though he has "this great move that I call ‘The Walrus’, where I just lie on top of my opponent & do nothing.”

Meta's "Project 92" is expected to function similarly to Twitter, which is currently experiencing an exodus of both users and advertisers, who have cited the hateful content allowed to flourish on the platform through lax moderation.

Musk infamously purchased Twitter for $44 billion following a legal scuffle with the company’s former leaders. The social media platform is estimated to be worth only $15 billion today, barely six months after the transaction.

With that big of a drop, it seems Musk has nothing left to lose except his dignity.

Oh, wait.
